The fixture against Watford FC has become almost a must-win game, with five losses and a draw in the past six games for the men in yellow and green.

A defeat against the Hornets would leave the Canaries propping up the Premier League table in 20th place.

Now fans' groups are leading the call for supporters to get behind the team by raising the roof and matching the atmosphere at Norwich's last win - the 3-2 triumph over title holders Manchester City.

Di Cunnigham, of Proud Canaries, said: "In my heart I am desperate for a win, for the fans, for the players, for Farke, Webber and Delia.
